Pro-testy



I will be at the Prop 8 protests on Saturday, November 15.

I can't figure what sign I would make, or what I would want to say. I know it's petty to talk about money, but when I was in a relationship, estate taxes were a big worry. I own my house outright. We could have done a joint lease or something, but then I would have lost all the tax benefits from owning a house.

I already have maxed out the effective exclusionary amount, so if I die, my partner would have to come up with a quarter million dollars for the IRS. Since my estate wouldn't have that much liquid cash, my partner would probably have to sell the house. To me, that was a big difference between being married and being in a "civil partnership"... cold hard cash.
